We Had One of Those Too! celebrates even more motoring memories from New Zealand's golden age of motoring. Filled with a beautifully illustrated collection of cars, from the 1950s through to the 1970s, that Kiwis loved and drove during that period, this book is literally a nostalgic drive down memory lane. We Had One of Those Too! showcases the cars that have become icons of New Zealand popular culture, and that we, or our parents and grandparents owned. Featuring 35 cars We Had One of Those Too! is delightfully illustrated using the evocative artwork of sales brochures of the times, and includes details of the cars technical descriptions, along with text about its social history and nostalgia.
